Dear Jana,

Thank you for all of your help…Aside from your professional approach, suggestions and guidance, I felt very comfortable, less tense and less anxious during our initial meeting.


I’ve never received such good representation ever; she’s very thorough and with today’s hectic lifestyle I had forgotten my court date and she would send friendly reminders. The service she provided was awesome!


Thanks to her I knew in advance what to expect…I appreciate her pragmatism and experience, and am already in the process of calling upon her again for other legal matters.


Excellent service, very professional lawyer who is considerate of her client’s time and money.


I found Jana to be logical, impartial and firm to her principles. She is a consummate professional.
